What is the difference between Strattic and standard hosting?
The main differences between Strattic and standard hosting can be broken down into three categories: security, speed, and scalability.
How does Strattic compare to static site generator tools?
Static site generator tools like Gatsby, Hugo and Jekyll have a good end product – a static site. But they are missing all the benefits of WordPress – a system that makes it a pleasure to add and edit new content, and a massive WordPress ecosystem to help you along the way.
How does Strattic differ from WordPress static site generator plugins?
Static site generator plugins (like Simply Static and WP Static Site Generator) will help you create a static site, but they don’t take into consideration all the functionality that’s included out-of-the-box with Strattic.
Where do I edit my site?
Strattic provides you with a staging site, where you can edit your WordPress site like you always have.
Can I add plugins and themes?
Of course! You can continue adding plugins and themes to your site like you always have. If you’d like more details on what to keep in mind for a static site, you can check out our compatibility list here
Can I use Git?
In order to deploy a code repository on Strattic, we recommend using a tool like DeployHQ. This allows for the repository to be deployed via SFTP. Tools like DeployHQ track your commits and run a script to move your code from the repository to the server. You can check out our step by step tutorial here.
Can I FTP into my site’s server?
You can use SFTP to gain access to your staging site’s server where your WordPress website sits.
You can access your SFTP information from within your Strattic dashboard. Simply login and click on the name of your site, and then click on “Details”.
Does Strattic support contact forms?
Can I have comments on my website?
Can I have search on my website?
Do you support Elementor?
That’s a yes! You will find that we support the majority of Elementors functionality. We even support Elementor forms! Our only exception is modules that use Ajax or query parameters.
Can I have ads on my website?
How is a CDN more powerful with Strattic?
Because Strattic serves a static version of your site, your whole site is served via the CDN, not just the assets.
Will Strattic increase my Google Page Speed Insights Score?
Strattic customers usually see an improvement in their Page Speed Insights (PSI) scores after migrating their websites.
Does Strattic offer a free SSL certificate?
You bet it does!
Why is WordPress on Strattic more secure?
When running a standard WordPress site, security is always something to keep in mind. The amount of tooling needed to ward off the malicious actors is time consuming, and the battle against hackers is unending: one slip or missed security patch can spell disaster.
But when visitors are accessing a static replica of the site, hackers have nothing to breach. All the layers of vulnerabilities found in a standard WordPress installation are nonexistent in its static counterpart. They can try to brute force their way in, but on a static architecture even that won’t impact the site’s performance, and it will hum along as usual.
With static WordPress, security concerns become a thing of the past, and instead of constantly worrying about updating plugins and software, you can focus on doing your job.
Do I need to upgrade my WP version or plugins on Strattic?
Nope! Because your site is more secure on Strattic, you don’t need to rush to upgrade your WordPress version or plugins. However, we do recommend upgrading as best practice for maintaining a healthy site.
